When I was 15, I saw A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE for the first time. I was on the prop crew for the production at my high school and spent a lot of time making candy glass and sitting under the window to catch the falling radio. Sitting backstage every night, I listened to the actors bring Tennessee Williams’ words to life and I fell in love with both Williams and STREETCAR.
A few months ago, I had this idea to produce 25 posters for STREETCAR. Using a variety of media and executing multiple themes & concepts from the play, I plan to create and release a new poster every two weeks for the next year.
After re-reading the 1947 classic over the weekend, I will release my first poster tomorrow, March 26, Tennessee Williams’ 101st birthday.
Wish me luck! (Or break a leg, rather).
